Jena Berlin Ready New Vinyl, Tour Dates

Philly's Jena Berlin has just announced that their upcoming 7-inch, This Is Yours As Much As It Is Mine, is now available for pre-order from Jump Start. Limited to 300 copies, pressed on red vinyl with hand-printed sleeves and inserts, the 7-inch contains two brand new songs as well as a digital download coupon for both, plus two additional tracks not included on the vinyl. The four songs were recorded by Zolof The Rock & Roll Destroyer's Vince Ratti, who has also worked with Circa Survive, None More Black, Valencia and Achilles. You can currently stream "The Great Plains" on the band's MySpace page. You can also stream "Foolish Optimism" at Jump Start's MySpace page.

Also, for anyone pre-ordering the 7-inch, you can pick up Jena Berlin's two long players, Passion Waits As The Program Keeps Going and Quo Vadimus, for a mere five bucks each.

Speaking of Quo Vadimus, Jena Berlin's 2007 sophomore full-length will also be receiving the vinyl treatment from Ass-Card Records in Europe. More details soon on how you can pick that up, but it should be available for their upcoming European tour.

Before their trek overseas, the boys will be leaving next Wednesday for a short five-day tour with Scream Hello. They'll be joined by Static Radio NJ on a few of those dates, as well as cast of bands: Bridge And Tunnel, One Win Choice, The Ergs, Sakes Alive and Nakatomi Plaza.

After their short run with Scream Hello, Jena Berlin will be leaving for a three week tour of Europe with label mates Antillectual. Jump Start will be releasing the US vinyl version of the Belgium band's latest full-length, Testimony, on September 23rd.
